The Million Girls Moonshot seeks to inspire and prepare the next generation of innovators by engaging one million more girls in STEM learning opportunities through afterschool and summer programs. Through a grant with the Million Girls Moonshot, Colorado Afterschool Partnership (CAP) is pleased to announce a request for proposal for a series of four virtual STEM trainings for the afterschool and summer field.
The focus of the trainings is to teach afterschool and summer educators how to help youth develop an Engineering Mindset and how to increase cultural responsiveness, equity, and inclusion in STEM. Each training should include STEM resources and a curriculum available for use at no cost by the program.
The four trainings are to occur July 2021, October 2021, January 2022, and March 2022. CAP will pay $2000 or $500 per training. CAP will host the trainings on ZOOM.
Articles to guide the proposal:
- Developing an Engineering Mindset
- How to make STEM culturally responsive
- Expanding Access and Inclusion in STEM through Culturally responsive Family Engagement
Please submit written proposals of no more than three pages not including outlines for each of the four trainings to Megan@coloradoafterschoolpartnership.org by June 20th.
Preference will be given to Colorado based providers.
